the quiet light

12 x 16, oil on canvas

"It is light that reveals, light that obscures, light that communicates.
It is light I "listen" to.
The light late in the day has a distinct quality, as it fades toward the darkness of evening.
After sunset there is a gentle leaving of the light,
the air begins to still, and a quiet descends.
I see magic in the quiet light of dusk.
I feel quiet, yet intense energy in the natural elements of our habitat.
A sense of magic prevails.
A sense of mystery.
It is a time for contemplation,
for listening..."
John Sexton
